Also making a return to this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be the Red Titan from "Ryan's World" balloon, first introduced in 2020, and Papa Smurf from The Smurfs!
Unfortunately, there seems to be a couple of fixtures missing from this years Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade: Nickelodeon's Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Shimmer & Shine floats and the Red Power Ranger balloon, the latter two were also missing from last year's parade.
Following last year’s made for television celebration, the official kick-off to the holiday season will take to the streets of Manhattan on Thursday, November 25th beginning at 9:00 a.m. On Thanksgiving Day, the spectacle will once again delight New York City spectators and a national television audience with its signature mix of giant character helium balloons, fantastic floats, marching bands, performance groups, celebrities, clowns, and the one-and-only Santa Claus.
“Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been a New York City institution for more than nine decades, growing to become an icon of American pop culture as it annually marks the official start of the holiday season,” said Will Coss, Executive Producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “For our 95th celebration, we are delighted to return this cherished holiday tradition closer to its original form as we march down the streets of New York City and into the homes of a nationwide audience.”
“We are thrilled to welcome back in its full form the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, a world-renowned celebration that ushers in the magic of being in New York City during the holiday season,” said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. “We applaud Macy’s work to creatively continue this beloved tradition last year and look forward to welcoming back Parade watchers to experience it safely, live and in person this November.”
To once again safely produce the annual Thanksgiving Day celebration, Macy’s partnered closely with the City and State of New York to create an event production plan that would ensure health and safety practices are aligned with current CDC guidelines, as well as local and state government protocols.
The health and well-being of participants and spectators continues to be Macy’s number one priority.
Following the most up-to-date health guidelines, the City of New York will manage public viewing locations and safety procedures along designated portions of the route with access details to be announced.
For its participants and staff, Macy’s will put in place several health and safety procedures across all areas of the production.
2021 Health & Safety procedures include, but are not limited to the following:
- All volunteer participants and staff will be vaccinated. Vaccine verification will be conducted at all back of house entry points. A few exceptions to this procedure may be made at the sole discretion of Macy’s and its medical consultant based on select extenuating circumstances. For those rare instances, Macy’s medical consultant will administer COVID-19 testing and clear the individual for Parade participation.
- All participants and staff regardless of vaccination status will wear face coverings and additional protective equipment, as warranted by their role. As appropriate, exceptions may include singers, dancers and musicians performing down the route or for the national broadcast.
- Macy’s will implement a reduction in the overall number of participants of between 10 to 20 percent (approximately 800 to 1,600 participants).
- Social distancing practices will be in place at all interior/exterior Parade operations including costuming areas, seating and participant check-in.
- Following the successful live audience production of this year’s Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks® and the safe production of last year’s Parade celebration, Macy’s along with its government agency and health partners will continue to monitor evolving health trends and will be ready to implement contingency plans should conditions warrant.
2021 Macy’s Parade initial production plan (subject to change):
- Marching band, cheer and specialty group performances originally slated for the 2020 Parade will take place this year live in New York City.
- Macy’s signature giant character balloons will once again be flown with 80-100 handlers, the flight management team and its anchor vehicle.
- The return of Macy’s Balloon Inflation event is currently under consideration. More information will be announced in November.
- Details on the exact public viewing locations including viewing maps, entry guidelines and restrictions will be announced in November. Spectators are encouraged to check macys.com/parade in advance of their travel to the Parade route.

No job is too big, no pup is too small! PAW Patrol is on a roll this Holiday Season and Ryder is here to save the day! Thanks to Nickelodeon and Macy’s – we were lucky enough to have a behind-the-scenes tour of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Balloon Inflation to see our favorite character take shape – Chase from PAW Patrol!
An Annual Tradition
Every year, millions of spectators gather for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City to view the airborne giant helium-filled balloons and balloonicles, spectacular floats, clowns, marching bands and performance groups, as they make their way through New York City to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday.
A Balloon Inflation Celebration
Just as fun as the parade is the annual celebration that takes place the day before. The Macy’s Parade Balloon Inflation provides an exciting preview of the larger-than-life balloons that you will see in the famous parade and get a ‘sneak preview’ as they are filled with helium at eye level, making the experience up-close and personal.
Before the inflation – the balloons lie flat on the ground waiting for their turn to be filled. The American Museum of Natural History oversees the celebration.
The inflation takes place around the American Museum of Natural History, where numerous helium tank trucks and teams of parade workers line the museum perimeter and help to fill these giant balloons with helium. Once inflated, the Macy’s balloon crew secures the characters overnight. The crew places numerous sand bags around the netting – tethering these balloons tight (so they don’t take flight). It’s here that the balloons will stay until the famous parade.
We see an ear! Chase is taking shape!
To see these balloons come to life is truly an incredible sight! Where else could you marvel at larger-than-a-house sized balloons directly in front of you?
The pup-pack is filled! It’s starting to look like Chase!
The talented balloon crew works quickly to fill the balloons. The balloon is filled with large hoses, and work on a balloon section-by-section. It takes approximately 45 minutes to fill a balloon with helium.
Chase is on the Case! Look how amazing this balloon is!
After the balloon has been completed the crew secures the balloon with sandbags (to be sure the balloon doesn’t take flight over night!).
One PAW-Some Balloon
Having attended the event annually as a family for years – We were ecstatic to be invited to an exclusive behind the scenes PAW Patrol inflation of our little guy’s favorite character – none other than Chase from PAW Patrol!
We love Chase and the entire PAW Patrol pack of pups. The PAW Patrol goes on high-stakes rescue missions to protect Adventure Bay, while teaching kids how to solve problems through teamwork. We can also now watch the newest and most exciting adventures yet on the PAW Patrol: Mighty Pups DVD available exclusively at Walmart. It takes the fun of the show and adds even more adventure and fun! We love the feel-good missions in the show, and that PAW Patrol teaches kids that no job is too big and no pup – or child- is too small!
Watching Chase take shape was truly an incredible sight. Fun balloon facts: Chase’s hat could cover an actual police squad car and his paws are larger than four full-grown German Shepard Dogs! (How cool is that?!)
An amazing afternoon that we will never forget! Thank you Nickelodeon and Spin Master for the tour!

Pups paw patrol balloon
No longer in the uniform of a servant, but in very stylish home clothes, from her appearance I got a little excited. On a short leash my Vika crawled behind her, completely naked with a humiliated look. On her forehead, Vicki, just like me, had the initials of the master, and on her butt there was the whore brand.
The expression in Vicky's eyes at the sight of me was something like horror and fear at the same time, despair.PAW Patrol - Burst That Balloon! - Mighty Pups Toy Episode - PAW Patrol Official \u0026 Friends
Of this story herself. Her not the best adviser - fear - more and more pulled into the abyss of lust and passions, accustoming her to base ways. And habits. And she, sitting on the floor, leaning her back against the desk and spreading her hips wide apart, began to fiddle. With her clitoris, causing pleasant sensations.

You slept so soundly that you didnt want to wake up, but your ass wanted a dick, dont you agree. I opened my mouth to answer, but he was busy with a member of Dimon, who let him down first, and Kolyan finished after him. Then Kolyan took a big artificial dick made of latex.
